Have you recently been bereaved? And live in Manchester?
This arts-health project is designed to offer residents of Manchester who have been bereaved an individualised framework of creative support through the making of ‘Memory Cushions’.
Working in small groups online via Zoom, Arts Health practitioner Ruth Flanagan will guide participants to each make their own ‘Memory Cushion’ using textiles, found objects, photos and the printing of words. Each participant will be encouraged to find their own source materials.
No sewing skills or artistic experience will be necessary, the workshop is open to all. Access to a computer and the use of video conferencing software Zoom would be preferable. However, other options can be discussed.
The proposed date would be to start in late September 2020, at a regular weekly time over 4 consecutive weeks.
